the size and scope of the government. >> that's right. president obama for at least two years now, maybe longer, has always been talking about a balanced approach to tackling the deficit. when he talks about balanced approach, he means tax revenue and cutting spending, however the only part of the conversation we're having is about tax revenue. no conversation whatsoever about the spending part of this equation. that's because he has no intention of cutting spending. >> sean: senator chambliss is clear, it's increasing revenue, getting more money from the american taxpayer. isn't that a tax? >> yes. what they fail to see or don't want to see or acknowledge this country doesn't have a revenue problem. there's plenty of revenue coming into the treasury. remember the "t" in tea party stands for tax enough already. we have a severe spending problem. before barack obama became president, sean, federal government spending was about 18%, 19% of gdp. barack obama and the democrats have pushed it up to 24% to 25%. >> we're talking about spending more money to artificially prop up the markets. the
. president obama is doing something very strange right now. very strange and you should know about it. he only won the election by 3.5 million votes out of more than 120 million cast. he knows we're a divided nation answered also knows millions of americans don't believe is he looking out for them. he also knows that we have a budget situation that could send the country into bankruptcy. so it is on the solve the problem. this week, treasury secretary tim geithner offered the president's plan. it would raise taxes for high earning americans by $1.6 trillion over the next decade. that's on income, capital gains and dividends. also limit deductions for those folks. also return the estate tax to a whopping 45% for wealthy families. but on the spending front. there really isn't anything substantial on the table. nothing. the president basically saying i'm not going to cut much. and blank you if you don't like it. >> it's not just a bad deal. this is really an insulting deal. what geithner offered what you showed on the screen. robert e. lee was offered easier terms and he lost a civil war. th

's not the right direction to go. >> it's interesting how no one from the bibz community has said president obama is wrong in all of this. none of the ceos who met with the president of the united states today came forward and challenged the president's plan. democratic leader nancy pelosi told me last night, ceos have been very understanding of the plan set forth by the white house. the business community is willing to accept rate increases. they are really making more concession than john boehner. eric cantor says republicans are not going to adjourn this year until a deal is reached. is that a sign of early capitulation? he knows republicans can't go home to their districts with absolutely nothing to show for it. that's not what the american people voted for. john boehner says he's willing to stick around town to get a deal done? >> i'll be here and i'll be available at any moment to sit down with the president, to get serious about solving this problem. >> but president obama says john boehner's presence is not the solution, it's the problem. >> the holdup right now is that speaker boehner to

of women's rights -- the champon of women's rights? >> the obama administration and the left in the country believe so much that the muslim brotherhood is a very moderate movement, and the leader morsi is a very moderate statesman. this is why they do not believe that implementing the law will oppress women in egypt. it's like burying their heads in the sand, refusing to accept reality, and admit that everything that they believed about the muslim brotherhood and morsi is a lie. for them to admit that, it will force them to come up with different solutions to what we're facing in egypt, and they're not ready to face it. >> and we're funding them. that's another side. abbas, let me go to you. you have morsi. first the muslim brotherhood said they weren't going to run, and they ran. they got into power, targeting israel first, declaring them the number one enemy. now morsi is taking over the military and implementing shria law. will this be good for the egyptian people. >> shawn sean, we're going throa revolution in egypt. in a revolution the old regime gets purged. he took out the old cronie
